'Dancing With The Stars' Winner Alfonso Ribeiro Talks Big Win, Tour

26 November 2014 9:06 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Three couples made it to the championships, but only one star could claim victory.

*Warning: Spoilers Ahead

This Dancing With The Stars season 19 championship had everything you could possibly want in a season finale! Big name musical stars, show-stopping dance numbers and a guest dance from (almost) every star that competed this season.

One problem that Dancing With The Stars always faces during their season finale spectaculars is that almost all the viewer votes have already been cast and counted, meaning the episode always feels like two hours of inconsequential musical routines and filler before the contestants' final dances.

However, this season was jam-packed with super entertaining performers and riveting dance routines. So when Tommy Chong, Randy Couture, Bethany Mota, Jonathan Bennett and all the other dancers you loved to watch (or loved to hate) redid their most memorable routines, it was simply »

25 November 2014 7:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

After another wild and wacky season of tangos and tears, salsas and cheers – not to mention one of the most closely contested finales in Dancing With the Stars history – Season 19’s momentous, Mirrorball-crowning moment of truth is upon us.

Would the ballroom’s most consistently excellent performer, Alfonso Ribeiro, maintain his form long enough to hold off two fiercely formidable female challengers — Sadie Robertson and Janel Parrish? Would it all come down to Tuesday’s last dance, the mega-challenging 24-hour Fusion Challenge? (Um, it might’ve… had all three routines not garnered 10s across the board from the judges!)

'Dancing With the Stars' did a Super Mario number, and it was weird

25 November 2014 2:43 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

At its best, Dancing with the Stars has a sort of manic energy to its performances—even when the celebrities aren't the best dancers, the choice of theme or music can still be fun. Last night, Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame danced with partner Mark Ballas to a Super Mario Bros. medley, one of the most famous and recognizable suites of video game music ever made. It was pretty weird. »

The 7 Best Dances From the First Night of 'DWTS' Season 19 Finals

24 November 2014 8:50 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The first night of Dancing With the Stars' season 19 finals began Monday night, and the competition was the toughest it has ever been. With four couples who all know their way around a dance floor like nobody's business, it was clear from the first moment that no matter who went home, it was going to be disappointing.

The stars got the chance to show off their skills with two different dances. The first was a routine that they performed earlier in the season, but didn't necessarily get perfect. Each star also had one of the four judges to advise them on how to improve their routine. It was really a night of dancing redemption.

The second dance would be a freestyle, which allowed the couples to choreograph any type of dance they wanted, and each of the stars brought their very best to »

It seemed wrong to send someone home on a night where everyone got a 10 or two, but there can only be three couples in Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars finale. Even though she was partnered with repeat winner Derek Hough, YouTube star Bethany Mota was the latest hoofer to leave the ballroom. "I discovered things about myself, things I thought I could never do," Mota said. "I never thought I'd be this far in the competition. To be in the finals was the best thing ever."

One Direction's Liam Payne Surprises Sadie Robertson at 'DWTS' Rehearsal

24 November 2014 5:58 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Choreographed dance had been a boy band staple until One Direction hit the scene. Liam Payne explained why performing dances would be a bad idea for the group when he dropped in on Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson's Dancing With the Stars rehearsal.

"I'm so happy we don't have to dance, because we've seen -- with the boy bands -- the rehearsals you have to do and we can barely go in and sing a song without doing something stupid," Liam said.
